Gifts for family adventurers

Great Gift Ideas for Traveller

I absolutely love my lenses from Moment (from $99). They easily attach to my iPhone and I capture some pretty spectacular photos when I don’t feel like lugging an actual camera around. My favorite lens is the Wide Lens. The Fisheye is super fun (especially for families who love to camp!) and they even offer a starter kit. Don’t want to splurge on all the things – a gift card is also a great way to go. Note: their phone case is required to use their lenses.

Presents for the fashionista traveler

Travel Pants

Absolutely go with the Tencel Travel Pant ($175) by Anywhere Apparel. Love love love these pants. They have some pretty fantastic features that make them a great choice for travel day to meetings and even dinner out. Throw them on with tennies or pair them with cute booties for the perfect put-together look. Plus, the founder is a gem. 


Jac and Violet

Another female powerhouse and some of my all-time favorite pieces of jewelry/art are earrings by Jac and Violet (prices vary). I almost hate to mention this because I want them all to myself. LOL. They are so beautiful and crafted with love. Andrea’s earrings are made with clay, hand-cut and painted. They are so light and dainty. And, her designs are incredibly fun – you can throw on a simple white tee and jeans, add a pair of Jac and Violet earrings and you are set for the day into night. THE best.
